IT Expertise & Resources

Centralized Datacenter

We were asked by a national firm to consolidate operations from dozens of locations into a data center environment, with the goal of eliminating outdated hardware.

We designed a solution for them that brought all their existing domains together into a single one, added an enterprise-class printing solution, and enhanced end user desktop experience. We replaced many Windows 7 PCs to provide more uniform service quality.

All this was combined with a 24x7 help desk center and on-premise field service technicians.

Emergency Ransomware Recovery

A box maker called with an emergency: they’d been attacked by ransomware.  The ransomware was one of the most aggressive strains known. 

Together with our Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) partner, we stepped in, shutting down all Internet access and turning off all computers. One by one, they were added back to the network after each had been thoroughly scanned, rebuilt, or replaced. 

We kept a team of six in place for the better part of a month to remedy the wide-ranging impacts of the attack.

Fully Redundant Computing

A local horticultural company with over $50 million in annual sales, hundreds of acres of plants in cultivation, and a campus made up of 15+ interconnected buildings asked us to build them a fully redundant on-premises computing environment. 

We designed, installed, and supported the solution, which includes redundant servers, switches, wireless connectivity and on- and off-premises backup services.

What Our Clients Say

I got to know Marc and CNS because he was sent to our Newark operation where in a single visit he identified the problems we were having in our network and fixed everything in a return trip.  I was so impressed I invested in his company!

Anton Schiffenhaus
Chairman of the Board

The CNS team was great. They worked with us tirelessly in the most severe situation we have ever faced. CNS uniquely understood the need in our operation having worked many years with boxmakers. We genuinely could not have gotten back on our feet without them.

Laura Boucher
Chief of Staff

Century Box

It’s not often that your vendors deliver what they promise in the sales process, but CNS has been great. They adhere to the motto, “under promise and over deliver.” Every time we needed them, they were on the spot and stuck with us until the need was met, even when it wasn’t technically their issue to solve.
